Three things distinguish Cabot from other bush beans:
? Delectable flavor
? Unbeatable disease resistance
? Easier harvesting
First and most importantly, flavor! These straight, dark green pods average 5? inches long, packed with delectable seeds and very uniform (which simplifies canning). The bite is full-bodied and succulent, a homegrown richness of flavor that you just can’t get from supermarket beans. You will love them straight off the plant as well as cooked in all your favorite dishes.
Second, disease resistance. Beans are pretty easy to grow anyway — you really can’t go wrong — but Cabot has taken their performance to a whole other level. This amazing bush bean is resistant to common bean mosaic virus, rust, common blight, halo blight, curly top virus, and bacterial brown spot. Can you imagine how big your crops will be with this kind of protection for every plant and pod?!
Third, ease of harvest. We call Cabot the Stoop-free Bean because most of the pods set at the top of the plant, so you don’t have to go bending and crawling around trying to find those hidden low-lying beans! You might think this isn’t very important, but if you grow a lot of beans, you’ll be surprised by how much time (and back pain!) you save with Cabot!
During the growth, mulch the plants in well to keep moisture in the soil. Beans are shallow-rooted, and they can be watered several times a week in the heat of the summer. Light feeders, they actually improve the soil as they grow, helping fix nitrogen that plants need for optimal growth. And after you harvest the last delicious bean, be sure to chop up the plants and plow them right back into the soil. You’ll have a great head start on next year’s crop by building up the soil!
